Watermelon salsa and then gazpacho

In Uncategorized on August 15, 2011 at 3:47 pm

We had a mini salsa fest last night and were treated to three, to which I added a fourth. First a quick mention of the three:

  1. Tomato and avocado with kalamata olives and capers
  2. Tomatillo, jicama and queso fresco with lime and orange
  3. Pineapple and orange pepper
  4. And then this one: Minty Watermelon Ginger

3-4 cups diced watermelon
4 tablespoons or more minced fresh garlic
1/2 a sweet onion diced fine
2 T. of sugar (toss completely with the sugar before adding salt to preserve the cell walls)
1t. salt
3 full T. chopped fresh mint
1/2 diced yellow bell pepper

Mix and let sit for an hour in fridge for flavor to develop. I counted on the ginger to add the heat, but next time I might add some chopped chili as well.

Today for lunch, 2 c. of leftovers with juice whirled in the blender with 1/2 heirloom tomato.

Shoulda taken pictures. Oh wait! No camera. Sigh.
